Final Destination trends on Twitter after a driver faced an accident reminiscent of a scene from the iconic horror series' second film. The series of films, released between 2000 to 2011, follow different groups of people who are able to survive near-death experiences after someone has visions about impending disasters. After escaping however, the survivors are hunted down by an unseen force, Death, and killed to fix the flaws in Death's design that allowed them to escape originally. Final Destination's formula worked well for the franchise, allowing it to spawn five films that each added more to this premise to give fans more gory deaths and new stories.

Final Destination 2 follows Kimberly, portrayed by A.J. Cook, as her and her friends head off to celebrate spring break. Their plans are cut short after Kimberly has a vision of a lumber truck causing devastation along highway route 23. Although she is able to save lives after her vision, Death begins to hunt the survivors to finish what it started on the highway. One of the strongest and most realistic scenes in the franchise highlights the mayhem Death brings in a way the later installments fail to live up to or recreate.

On Friday, May 21st at 11:58 p.m., a user by the name of @DeeLaSheeArt posted a video of a real-life incident that appears to be almost a carbon copy of Final Destination 2's death scene where a log from a truck flies through a car's windshield on the driver's side. Since posted, Final Destination has been trending on Twitter, highlighting what @DeeLaSheeArt calls, "every millennials nightmare." Check out @DeeLaSheeArt post on Twitter to view the clip.

This trending on Twitter could be a great reinvigoration for fans of the original franchise. The reminder of what made the franchise so strong in the early 2000s can get viewers excited about Final Destination 6, which creator Jeffery Reddick began developing prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that the world is reopening, the film should be able to pick up where it left off and use this momentum to hype audiences for what is to come.

When real life imitates art, it only makes the art more enticing. The original Final Destination series gives plenty of carnage, destruction, and in some cases, a decent story with a realistic feel. The video surely makes the road seem dangerous, but future movies will likely continue to give viewers even more nightmares about grisly deaths. The world can be unsafe, but that fear is what the film utilizes to make audiences squirm and beg for more.
